Do any sites besides Bovada show the hands of players who folded preflop in the hand history?

I am going to assume that what you really want to know is which sites offer services in Hawaii, and in that case, the answer is, all of the ones in the original post of this thread.

Extrapolating from this, the businesses which offer online poker to most states in America, deem Hawaii to be a place where they have a legal argument to offer online poker without fear of legal retribution from the various governments involved.

WRT players, no one from Hawaii has ever been set upon by the various governments for engaging in online poker. Have no fear.

Carbon Gaming
Bovada
Ignition
Global Poker
Intertops
SWC
ACR
Bet Online

I do understand the limitations, when I was in Barcelona last month I could play on Bovada, but not Ignition. To top it off, my account was frozen when I came back to the US - Bovada said I should inform them in advance about using a different IP, which I will start doing via email. They did unlock me, but it took a couple of hours. P.S. Global is the softest site and they take players from Kansas, you just have to deal with the horrible software

On Juicy Stakes Poker it's very light. Hard to find an MTT with 100 players, and sometimes a tournament won't even start due to lack of players. The biggest MTTs in poker prime time usually max out at around 80 players.

Re: Where can US players play? - First post updated Mar '18

how come in original post it says nothing about Kansas being a restricted state for bovada ignition but when I try to download client it says not accepting players from my area.

I use phone as hotspot for internet so is it something with that? My ip should still represent my area appropriately though?

Global looking pretty cool browser based. So I just use my sweepcash on nl4 table. Does it have multi table option?

Yes, you can multitable and the windows are resizable although the software is quite behind the other US facing networks overall. Not that it really makes a huge difference when the games are profitable.

I haven't heard of Kansas being a restricted state from playing at either Bovada or Ignition prior to your post. I would advise you to email both sites and see what they say if you'd really like to try to play there. Perhaps there is an error with their website that is erroneously blocking people in the state of Kansas.

Things change, so the OP could need updating, but I think this is the best way to start:

Kansas is just fine. Your IP is probably geolocating elsewhere. This is quite common for mobile phones.

Try looking up your IP address. Just type "what is my IP address" into any modern search engine for the quickest answer.

Re: Where can US players play? - First post updated Mar '18

I'm playing on 5+ US networks right now. Who has the best 10nlz? Ignition's traffic is in the 5nlz pool and then most of it seems to jump up to 25nlz.

There are only 3 US networks that offer speed poker. I presume you play on all of them at this point.

Pai Wang Luo Network (Ignition, Bovada for US)
Chico Poker Network (BetOnline, Sportsbetting for US)
Winning Poker Network (ACR, BCP, True for US - just added their product this week and it is mobile only currently)

ACR Refugee looking for a site that isn't a TAGfest

Hey 2+2. I've been having some "profitability"issues with ACR lately. I'm hoping to get some insight from the poker community on this:

In recent months, I've come to find that I've been table selecting more than I've been actually playing on ACR; it seems that the average lifespan of a decent table is 10-20 minutes...after which point, it becomes an absolute TAGfest.

Players who normally would be winning players (and probably were 10 years ago) all end up playing each other and are barely able to keep up with the rake on a good day.

I'm about to throw in the towel. I'm looking to play cards, not browse tables in the main menu all day.

Does anyone have any suggestions for card rooms that actually have a good player pool? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Where can US players play? - First post updated Mar '18

I'm assuming you mainly play cash games. If you're alright with being limited to 4 cash tables and subpar software then Ignition or Bovada on the PaiWangLuo Network is a good option for you. They have the most traffic of the sites catering to the US market.

There are really only two other options with any significant traffic besides Ignition/Bovada or the WPN sites. One of them is Global Poker. The other is BetOnline or SportsBetting on the Chico Network.

Around Christmas time I wrote the following post that includes most of your other options.

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/s...postcount=6541

If you have any questions about a specific site then you can ask here or, preferably, in their dedicated thread located in the Internet Poker Forum.

Thank you for your help. I'll make a soft transition to these rooms this week to check them out.

Much appreciated!

just tried to deposit to my juicy stakes account for the first time in years and my visa, amex and neteller were all rejected. I'm not into bitcoin. Do I have any other options to get $200 into juicy stakes? (Florida)

Bitcoin couldn't be much easier than it is. Getting into it and withdrawing/depositing that way would take you far less time than going through any of this.

TheRealQB is correct. I would take some time one day and learn about Bitcoin for your own convenience going forward. It's very easy to use once you've learned how to use it. I can provide you with some information on getting it set up if you would like.

If you're unwilling to do that then you should email the site and see what they suggest. You should also post in the thread below since people who play on that site would be more likely to see your question there.

Juicy support suggested I get an international visa card from netspend so I'm going to try that route. I'll consider bitcoin if that fails

Re: Where can US players play? - First post updated Mar '18

Props to neteller. I created an account and put in $25 to play on Juicy, but Juice rejected it. Neteller gave me a full refund including their fee when I closed my account a week later. Small $, but unexpected nonetheless because you really can't use that money anywhere in the USA for gambling or poker and I had pretty much written it off

got my netspend international visa card yesterday. loaded $30 onto it by mobile check deposit. Tried Juicy Stakes deposit again and got "unexpected error" 3 times. Just when I was about to give up on Juicy Stakes forever, tried again today and deposit went through !

Anyone having issues depositing on Global poker? I'm in PA. Wouldn't except my payment. I thought Global was good for all of the US.
